Coinbase adds payment pages to make sending bitcoin easier

Coinbase payment page

In the never-ending quest to make using and sending bitcoin easier, Coinbase unveiled today a new feature: payment pages, which let users create a custom web address (like Marc Andreessen’s to receive payments. The pages provide a QR code and bitcoin address that let anyone, not just Coinbase users, send bitcoins. While this will help make it easier for individuals to send money to each other, it could also be good for nonprofits (like shown above) who can give the URL out easier than handing out QR codes everywhere. To prove that point, rapper Nas, Andreesen and are donating all money received through their payment pages to charity until June 6th — a move that Coinbase will match up to $50,000 in combined donations.
